Sabra Field Print
Many Years in Vermont but a Vermonter?
Sabra Field has published hand-pulled, wood block prints from her Vermont Studio since 1969. Her work has been featured in over 50 one- person shows and several magazine covers.
She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and grew up in the New York City. She earned a B. A. with honors in The Arts from Middlebury College. She went on to receive a MAT degree. Sabra also taught high school art for seven years and inspired many Vermont artists.
Sabra Field Prints
Sabra has developed many innovative techniques in contemporary printmaking. She was an early user of the new Giclee technology. Giclee use sophisticated computer scanning and printing technology to reproduce exact copies of original artwork prints.
So what Sabra does now is she takes her wood cut prints as far as the "bon a tirer" stage (her best proof).
Previously, Field would then hand that proof to an in-house assistant to print. Now she gives it to an outside press for printing on a high quality ink jet printer. The word Giclee means "spray" and that is how the printing is so exact. Up to 12 seperate ink jets create a mix of colors that can be fine tuned until Sabra judges it is a perfect copy of the original.
Custom Framing for Sabra Field's Prints
All the artwork prints you see here may be purchased with or without a frame. Our frames are custom made by local framing specialist Lassie Barile. For Sabra Field Prints Lassie creates a custom blend of natural dyes to make the wood frame a perfect complement to the art print inside it. You may barely notice the frame, the mat or the special glass. What you do notice is the print looks it's very best. All framing is done by Lassie in her Waterbury, VT studio. Several details make Lassie's frames for Sabra Field prints special. Lassie studies the colors in each print to be framed. She then creates a custom blend of natural dyes to make the wood frame a perfect complement to the art inside it. All materials are museum quality. The glass protects from UV and the back of the frame is sealed against dust.
